I'm dumb.  I was assuming, no doubt incorrectly, that
this was the only axiom for import.

Dumb again.  The semantics haven't changed.  There's a global
renaming going on.  We have:


and an axiom:

   equivalentTo(?uriX, ?uriY)
/\ consistsOf(?z, ?uriX, ?fragment)
=> equivalentTo(concat(?uriX, ?fragment)
                concat(?uriY, ?fragment))

where consistsOf(x,y,z) means x consists of the base URI y with
fragment id z.

A cold bike ride home in the wind and rain wakes one up.
